Don Kimes provides a personal view of Abstract Expressionism as one of two great American contributions to world cultural - the other being jazz - in the 20th Century. This tour of the exhibit "Abstraction in America: The 1940s to the 1960s" encourages questions and observations by the audience. This is Part 7 of a 7 part series during July and August of the 2011 season.
This tour was also part of the 2nd Annual "Buffalo Day @ Chautauqua," sponsored by C-SAAHN, The Buffalo News, Visit Buffalo Niagara and Chautauqua Institution, and included a well known Buffalo artist, Rita Argen Auerbach.
This recording is part of the C-SAAHN "Chautauqua Story" AUDIO Series created by The Center for the Study of Art, Architecture, History & Nature (C-SAAHN http://www.buffaloah.com/h/center/index.html) as part of the "Buffalo-Chautauqua Idea." ---By Dennis Galucki, Founder & Coordinator, C-SAAHN
